This is a terrific spring to midsummer smoothie, when the berries are in season. We usually freeze as many strawberries and blueberries as we can so we can make it in midwinter, too. It's chock full of vitamins and tastes…
I got a recipe for Healthy Bone and Joint Cocktail from my massage therapist because my knees and joints often feel a little sore in the mornings. I modified it to use some of the herbs I keep on hand. It's meant to be taken at night, about half an hour before sleep, because when you sleep your body does the bulk of its recovery and repair work. My massage therapist said the nutrients this cocktail offers give your bones and joints a particular boost. On the morning after I drink Healthy Bone and Joint Cocktail, I've noticed I rarely feel sore at all, so I reckon it's working splendidly.
Most bathroom air fresheners have an overwhelming scent. This formula is light and refreshing yet effective enough to cover unpleasant odors. The lavender has an added bonus of serving as an antimicrobial herb for the room in the house that needs it most.
Incense is fun and easy to make. This blend is designed to spark romance and set a safe, luxurious environment for lovemaking.
After the flu or colds have hit a household, viruses can still linger in nooks and crannies. A stagnant odor in the air seems to permeate everything the flu suffer has touched. Fortunately, nature has provided 3 lovely flowers to take care of this problem. Lavender and Yarrow are sweet smelling anti-bacterial and antiviral botanicals and Rose is a soothing astringent that softens the sharp edge of its companions. This recipe has two purposes; to clean the air and the walls or counters in question. The process described is for serious cleaning. Don't let the lovely name fool you, this mixture is powerful.
I love to drink this tea iced in the summer with a sprig of fresh lemon balm. Served hot in late winter, it's a wonderful, wake up call reminding me June's strawberries are right around the corner.
